It gives new meaning to elevator music.

Sure does!

B. Stockwell mentioned making a fake documentary about a coffee shop, so this music might help him/her. Also, Meatpies said she was working on some videos.

Oddly enough, I remember music like this playing when my mother and I would go to Kmart when I was a little girl.

Your comment makes me want to listen to the music in the link. I want to compare with music I hear at my local Kmart today (which last time I checked, included some dreadful "song" about some "single ladies" that included an arrangement more annoying than catchy. That was a few months ago, maybe more than a few months, so I wonder what they are playing right now.).

When I was a kid I loved going to S.S.Kresge's! It was *THE* place to shop in our town...until they built K-Mart! I got a job there fresh out of high school before the store actually opened, so I was there for the running-of-the-bulls-like stampede of "K-Mart Shoppers!" on our Grand Opening day. Talk about insanity! It looked like a twister hit the store.

Somehow, that music is so tacky and fun that it reduces stress. I can smell the K-Mart grill now... ah, memories.

Did you know that the "K" in K-Mart is for Kresge? That's why Kresges disappeared when K-Marts appeared, they're the same product in a new package. I did some work in K-Mart's "Store number one" somewhere east of the Miss, which retained the old moniker.

Yep, we'd get stuff from Troy sometimes labeled with both Kresge's and K-Mart. And you can bet as a loyal K-Mart employee that I shot lots of Focal brand film!

EDIT

Whoa, the severe weather is hitting us now, so I'm going offline for the evening! Emergency conditions in AZ...

No worries...reality is the wrong forum for me anyway. I like rain, but not this much.

Where are you in AZ? I just recently left Tempe and in San Diego now... Been some pretty harsh weather through here of late! Looks like surfing has been pretty good though!!!
